NEXCOM, the leading provider of network communication appliances and uCPE, introduces the NSA 6310, based on NXP® Semiconductors’ latest multi-core Layerscape® LX2160A platform. The NSA 6310 offers better performance and pricing than the market’s existing solutions and also fulfills telecom and IoT operators’ demand for multi-technology and edge computing white box solutions to address operational environment and business needs.

Edge computing is key to pushing next-gen networks to deliver better user experiences with low latency and high performance. The NSA 6310 with ARM platform is low cost while providing high performance and additional PCIe I/Os to add FPGAs or GPUs for AI/ML services in the edge,” explains Jovanni Lee, V.P. of Network & Communication Solutions at NEXCOM. “We are proud to deliver ARM edge computing by working with NXP.”

“With one of world’s most comprehensive edge computing portfolios today, NXP continues to play a leading role in developing the ARM-based hardware and software ecosystem. By leveraging our hardware-accelerated, Layerscape family of multicore processors, NEXCOM is expanding the availability of advanced uCPE solutions that can enable high-performance, low-power virtualized solutions,” Noy Kucuk, vice president product management, Digital Networking, NXP. “As a result of our collaboration, these differentiated uCPE offerings are designed to enable service providers to deploy efficient, edge compute systems that can support high-performance, multi-cloud frameworks.”

NEXCOM’s NSA 6310 is an open uCPE based on the Layerscape® LX2160A processor, with sixteen 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 cores. The cores, in combination with integrated hardware acceleration for cryptographic processing, virtual forwarding, and traffic management, provide support for multi-gigabit routing and network services.

The NSA 6310 white box also offers two SerDes slots, with a choice of four dedicated 25G, 10G, and 1G LAN modules, for customers who need multiple I/Os to satisfy different applications; FPGA/GPU support to extend computing applications, board manager control (BMC) module and IEEE 1588 PTP feature for server-grade network appliances; and optional PoE support for edge deployments.
